The bespoke gloves project I wrote about earlier this year makes progress. After a considerable amount of research (and nearly the same amount of failures) we* were able to find and buy the desperately needed carpincho leather from signore Roberto Ugolino, a Florentine shoemaker.
As the next step the glovemaker Mr. Steffen Buschendorf from Grimma in Eastern Germany will start manufacturing our carpincho gloves. This may take some weeks from now as he is pretty busy at the moment but they will be finished this winter. Finally.
*Luckily zaskarion, a member of the German Stilmagazin, was as interested in carpincho gloves as I was. Last weekend he bought the carpincho leather on a trunk show.
